Issue 1) MBA Display scrambled (been an issue for almost 3 years already) - this is a separate and distinct issue from retina display issue - screen is COMPLETELY scrambled, unreadable
Issue 2) Retina Display - not scrambled, but more like “looking at the screen through a stereoscope”
I’ve given up on a fix, especially when the developer just refuses to acknowledge the problem “we’ve received no other reports”
Would be nice to see it fixed though…[/quote]
I can confirm Issue 1. So consider this another report.
My guess is that it has something to do with the screen resolution. MBA 11" has a 1366x768 display. 1366 is not a multiple of 8. Most other resolutions are. Could that be a clue?
Changing the resolution on the Mac is a workaround that resolves this issue. To do this on Mountain Lion, got to System Preferences/Displays and change to Scaled.
This could be a VNC-client issue, but we have tried several clients and they all have the same problem. It’s not only a resolution issue. I’ve tried connecting to my Lenovo laptop (running X11 with Vino Server) with 1366x768 and that works.
Regardless of where the issue is, I think it would be worth the effort to fix this in Vine Server. Even if it means working around a client side bug. All clients I’ve tested have this issue, so fixing it in Vine Server will improve interoperability with all these clients.
